Pros: The lake is beautiful
Picnic areas
Restrooms
Camping areas
Very clean park
Unique baskets - Plastic bowls on top of 4x4 posts

(and this is supposed to be about a disc golf course)
Cons: Where do I start.....

First off the course has been abandoned due to lack of play. This was according to a parks and rec guy who was trying to figure out why on earth I was even wanting to play the course :D

- No tee pads - Tee from basket to basket.
- Fairways non-existent. I have played the baskets that are still remaining and utilized the mowed maintenance paths as fairways.
- Only 10 of the original baskets remain - the remaining baskets have been destroyed.
- Layout was obviously originally intended for park visitor use and was probably not very challenging when first opened for any serious disc golfer.
Other Thoughts: DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME! I have already done that for you so that you don't make the same mistake :) The Parks and Rec dept. has not intention of reviving the dead monster - as a matter of fact the guy told me I should go play the city park course in Greenfield 10 miles away - unfortunately I was out of time for the day or would have gladly marched away
